Getting Your Design
I got my design from the silhouette design store Tin Soldier & Ballerina by Studio Ilustrado.
I used the edit points to make the arms a bit wider and used the weld option to join the pieces together in order to cut the icing out.
Bringing The Design Into Silhouette 3D
Once I had completed my design in the Silhouette Studio software I then imported it into the Silhouette 3D Software.
I brought the file in as a simple Extrusion as I find this gives a cleaner cutting edge to the cutter than the actually Cookie Cutter template which is pre-installed into the software.
Once I was happy with the size of the cutter I sent it to print.
Making The Stencil
Whilst the Silhouette Alta was busy printing the cutter I went back into Silhouette Studio to make my stencil.
I coloured the picture in using the colour fill option so I could see what it would look like, then, I cut the stencil out with my Silhouette Cameo 3.
Colouring The Icing
Once the Silhouette Alta had finished printing the cutter I used it to cut out the icing shape.
Once cut I then placed the stencil over the icing and used food dust colours to colour it in.
